Hi, I would like to buy a personalized keepsake for my sons but I am not sure what to get... I like the personalized pillow cases but i wanted to get something a little more unique.

What keep-sake did you get for your child? and why?

My husband made our son a steel sign for his bedroom door that had his name on it. At my baby shower we had a quilt that we had everyone sign, could still do that one at a family event or something. I like the pillowcase idea because they can take it with them when they go to spend the night somewhere. Maybe in addition to their names, do their hand prints, and even add yours and their dads hand prints also. Should be able to find all the stuff to make homemade ones in the fabric section and create some memories to go with it.

I already have baby boxes with thier birth certificates, lock of hair, hospital bands, first outfit etc in them, and I have a memory book which I have stuck photos into and added my own comments to. My mum painted a canvas with thier names on aswel, I just wanted some idea's for something else. The handprints on the pillow cases is a great Idea! I have bought some canvas's for the summer, so we can go outside and paint them together, hand / food prints etc... =)
